Penile Cancer

Although not as common, our urologists provide treatment for the different types of penile cancer. Most penile cancer begins in the skin cells, but some cases begin in the blood vessels or muscle cells of the penis. We treat penile cancer with surgery, local therapy, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.

Penile Cancer Symptoms:

  • Lump on the penis
  • Discoloration or rash
  • Foul-smelling discharge under foreskin

How We Diagnose Penile Cancer:

  • Physical exam
  • Biopsy
  • Imaging Tests

Cancer of the penis is rare in the United States, but if you are at risk, finding it early is critical.



A penectomy is an operation that removes all or part of the penis in hopes of eliminating any sign of penile cancer.
